FANGIRL CHALLENGE: [1/10 female characters)
“I’ve been through more battles with Buffy than you all can ever imagine. She’s stopped everything that’s ever come up against her. She’s laid down her life literally to protect the people around her. This girl has died two times, and she’s still standing. You’re scared? That’s smart. You got questions? You should. But you doubt her motives, you think Buffy’s all about the kill? Then you take the little bus to the battle. I’ve seen her heart, and this time, not literally. And I’m telling you, right now, she cares more about your lives than you will ever know. You gotta trust her. She’s earned it.

Spike: The only reason you’re here, is that you’re not here.
Buffy: Right. Of course, as usual there’s something wrong with Buffy. She came back all wrong. You know, I didn’t ask for this to happen to me.
Spike: Not too put off by it though, are you?
Buffy: No! Maybe because for the first time since…. I’m free. Free of rules and reports. Free of this life.
Spike: Free of life? Got another word for that. Dead.
